The Sam Houston State soccer team will return to Pritchett Field Sunday with a Southland Conference showdown with rival Stephen F. Austin.

Pregame festivities Sunday include a “Free Food Tailgate” before the 1 p.m. contest with food provided by Pita Pit. The first 100 students in attendance will receive free Pita Pit.

The Bearkats bring a 4-6-1 overall mark and 2-2 Southland record into the contest. Sam Houston lost to Northwestern State 2-1 Friday night in overtime.

Sam Houston has not played a match on their home field at Pritchett Field since Sept. 8. The Bearkats have won all six of their contests on the new artificial field turf installed at the facility last year. Sam Houston has outscored opponents 17-1 in those six games.

SFA poses a tough test for the Kats having won the league title the last two seasons. The Lumberjacks are 3-1 in Southland play and have beaten LSU this season 4-0.

“We’re obviously excited about Stephen F,” said Brown. “This is always an important rivalry game for us. But having been on the road for so long we’re just happy to be back home.”

Sunday’s game at Pritchett Field starts at 1 p.m. The five games to follow will also be played at home starting with Lamar Friday, Oct. 11.
